ELK CITY -- Quote of the week: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,…” (In Congress, July 4, 1776 The Unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America)

Elk City ice falls

Those of you who live here, or drive our Highway 14 in the winter, and if you are like me, marvel at the ice falls on the cliffs that line the river. I stopped several times on Sunday as we drove out and took some pictures. I know in years past, they may have been bigger/thicker, but wanted to share these with those who don’t have a chance to see them.

Dr. Told will be at the Elk City Medical Clinic on Thursday, Feb 7. Call 208-983-8590 for an appointment.

House Call Vet, Dr. Kimberly Wolfrum will be in Elk City Feb. 19 and 20. She states that “Oral health is also a concern for pets. If you notice smelly breath or heavy tartar, this is not normal, a good cleaning and evaluation of each tooth under light anesthesia is the best way to solve the problem.” Give her a call at 208-553-9283 or text to set up an appointment. You can also e-mail: housecallvetdrkim@gmail.com.

Oops! Last June I recommended a book but gave you the wrong title, so if you were looking for it and couldn’t find it, it is called Big Trouble by Lukas, not Real Trouble. Sorry about that.

Meeting: Elk City Area Alliance on the 11th at 7 p.m. at the Forest Service meeting room. The community calendar has this organization’s meetings listed wrong. It is and has always been the 2nd Monday of each month.

Birthdays: Heather Kestner, Babara Wiersma, and Carolina Reyes.
